Imo Man Set12-Year-Old Maid Ablaze
A resident of the state of Imo named Uzoma Egemba was detained by the police after it was claimed that he set fire to his 12-year-old maid’s body for using his kids’ bicycles.
A group of concerned Nigerians, led by social media influencer Darlington Ibekwe and activist journalist Chidiebube Okeoma, worked to apprehend Egemba, a native of Mbaise, early on Thursday at his Umuguma home.
Egemba, who is currently being held at the New Owerri Police Divisional Headquarters, allegedly laid the blame for his evil deeds on the devil.
He admitted that on Sunday, after spotting the girl riding the bicycle he had bought for his kids, he had set the body of the girl on fire.
The girl was then taken by Okeoma to the Umuguma-Owerri specialty hospital in Imo, where she was admitted.
Visitors from the National Human Rights Commission, the Owerri branch of the Nigeria Bar Association, members of the Mbaitoli State Constituency of the Nigerian Bar Association, and an activist by the name of Uba Dinamuta visited the victim at the hospital and vowed to see that the child receives justice.
Under the condition of anonymity, one of the doctors disclosed that the girl’s burn injuries were severe.
The girl, according to her, would spend some time in the hospital so that staff could properly care for her and treat her wounds.
While confirming the incident, the girl’s mother, Amarachi Jude, stated that she wants justice to be done.
The police spokesperson for the Imo Command, Micheal Abattam, claimed that he was unaware of the details of the case involving the man who was allegedly arrested for allegedly setting his maid on fire because she was riding his children’s bicycle.
